While many people understand the importance of donation, Bobby Tinnell fully appreciated it after receiving a life-saving liver transplant in 2004.

Bobby’s transplant allowed him to celebrate alongside his family at graduations and weddings. It also allowed him to be present for the birth of his grandchildren. Bobby and his family were eternally grateful for the irreplaceable time his transplant provided.

When he passed away, Bobby’s family made sure that medical staff knew he wanted to be a donor. He wanted to pay forward the gift of life he had received. Bobby was able to be a tissue donor, and his family is proud that he provided life-saving and life-enhancing tissues to recipients in need.
